  • EUR/USDis in consolidation mode above 1.5550

Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

Gold should be an interesting instrument to watch during the ECB circus later today. The metal has been on an impressive run of late rallying some 10% since the start of the year and even more so in non-dollar terms. What is the metal trying to tell us? My general view of gold is that is trades in three basic regimes which are commodity, currency and somewhere in between. The move in gold over the past month against most other currencies suggests that the metal is trying to make the transition back into being viewed as a currency again. This is important and usually a precursor to financial market volatility and also somewhat fitting coming in the aftermath of the SNB decision last week as the nominal high in Gold coincided with the announcement of the 1.2000 floor in EUR/CHF. After a brief “war” on them, safe havens seem to coming back! How gold settles today and the week should give us a good indication of just how well the ECB has done. I’m starting to think of gold as a CDS on central banks.
